The management of frail older people is a key component of aged care. There has been a plethora of tools developed for the diagnosis and screening of frailty. Some of these tools are entering routine clinical practice at a time when the higher healthcare costs involved in caring for older people who are frail have become a potential target for cost-cutting. Yet there is still only limited evidence to support the widespread adoption of frailty tools, and foundational factors impact on their accur...

BACKGROUND Physical exercise has been linked to reduced frailty, but there is insufficient evidence of beneficial effects in community-dwelling older adults with subjective cognitive concerns. OBJECTIVE This study aimed to clarify the effects of physical exercise in this population. DESIGN Single-blind randomised controlled trial. SETTING Community sports centres. PARTICIPANTS Residents aged 65-85 years were screened using the Kihon checklist; those with subjective cognitive concerns were invite...

Blood pressure measurement with a cuff in patients with stiff arteries can be misleading, with false elevation of the diastolic pressure. Coronary flow, and most of the cerebral blood flow occur during diastole. There is a marked diastolic J curve in patients with diastolic pressure 60 mmHg. Aiming for a systolic target of 120 mmHg is not safe in some frail older patients.

Growing research in geriatric medicine is a priority area. Currently, involvement of geriatricians in research lags behind other specialties. The reasons for this are multifactorial, but a lack of training infrastructure within geriatric medicine higher specialist training is contributory. This is widespread across European countries and internationally. The Geriatric Medicine Research Collaborative (GeMRC) offers an opportunity to engage trainees in research, regardless of their previous indivi...

AIM To determine if frailty is associated with poor outcome following in-hospital cardiac arrest; to find if there is a "frailty threshold" beyond which cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) becomes futile. METHODS Retrospective review of patients aged over 60 years who received CPR between May 2017 and December 2018, in a tertiary referral hospital, which does not provide primary coronary revascularisation. Clinical Frailty Scale (CFS) and Charlson Comorbidity Index were retrospectively assigned....

BACKGROUND older patients aged ≥65 years constitute the majority of the National Emergency Laparotomy Audit (NELA) population. To better understand this group and inform future service changes, this paper aims to describe patient characteristics, outcomes and process measures across age cohorts and temporally in the 4-year period (2014-2017) since NELA was established. METHODS patient-level data were populated from the NELA data set years 1-4 and linked with Office of National Statistics mortali...

Background: Multi-morbidity and polypharmacy increase the risk of non-trivial adverse drug reactions (ADRs) in older people during hospitalization. Despite this, there are no established interventions for hospital-acquired ADR prevention. Methods: We undertook a pragmatic, multi-national, parallel arm prospective randomized open-label, blinded endpoint (PROBE) controlled trial enrolling patients at six European medical centres. We randomized 1,537 older medical and surgical patients with multi-m...

BACKGROUND findings from a recent qualitative study indicate that the perceived clinical relevance of computer-generated STOPP/START recommendations was a key factor affecting their implementation by physician prescribers caring for hospitalised older adults in the SENATOR trial. AIM to systematically evaluate the clinical relevance of these recommendations and to establish if clinical relevance significantly affected the implementation rate. METHODS a pharmacist-physician pair retrospectively r...
